Ian Poulter decides on Odyssey White Damascus putter for British Open

Ian Poulter's putter odyssey is over at last.

The Englishman has found a putter for the 2013 Open Championship, which is made by the same company who manufactured the flatstick he just abandoned.

Poulter will put an Odyssey White Damascus No. 1 putter in the bag this week. The putter head comes in a black finish with an Anser-style head.

Poulter announced the selection via Twitter on Tuesday after using the social-media service to solicit what turned out to be tens of putters from a variety of manufacturers.

"I've tried quite a few putters," Poulter told Sky Sports. "I got lots sent from everyone. I've found something which I like the look of, which seems to be rolling quite nice and hopefully we can go one place better than in 2008."

The Damascus No. 1 is not available in the United States. It was recently released to media and retailers in Japan, with it being available to the Japanese public in the fall.

Previously, Poulter had been using an Odyssey XG No. 7 putter, but he sacked it after a T-25 finish at the French Open two weeks ago.
